Okay, spoke to my friend this evening. Lots of good stuff. – The recent run on commits is enabling the staff to circle back and revisit some other recruitments that most think/thought are lost. N

Hello everyone. I just popped in to say hello. Since my crazy ass haven't been in here in almost Coons age due to alot of personal issues family related I've been having to go through and having to wo

Saw Herman speak today at a luncheon at the Headliners club here in Austin.  He did say that we would make room for 1 more OL commit in 2020 and that those of us who follow recruiting would know who h

He had plenty of opportunities to get in the boat and be a class leader for Texas and he passed. I think Texas moves forward from here.

I really wanted Lindberg. I think he would’ve filled out this class perfectly. Was very odd he never committed. Good luck to him.

 Nobody went aggy. 

I think sentiments to the effect that “we didn’t really want him” are quintessential aggie.  Surly (formerly Shaggy Bevo) named their recruiting board “RC didn’t offer.”

In any case those type sentiments - or even “I preferred someone else anyhow” as in the case with Evans - have much more credibility if they occur before a commitment elsewhere.

I’m going to tread lightly with Bijan until the day he signs.

That's a smart move. Unfortunately, for me I'm not that smart. I'm all set for UT on Friday. However, we will have to perform to fight off USC. The Texas Tech offense helped save Stoops at OU and it may save Helton. If not then we may need to then fight Urban.

Podcast from Ohio State insider says Bijan really likes LA.

 

What happened with Bijan?

C'mon guys. Bash aggy all you want, but don't demean your fellow members for stating their opinions. Just disagree with what they say and leave it at that. 

I think it is just Longhorn recruiting jargon.... nothing personal.... “we didn’t want him anyways” or “not SEC good” = going aggie.   We’re not that thin skinned are we?

Texas needs to make sure they recruit through the finish line on Robinson and not take him for granted. OSU being ruled out is a big hurdle cleared, but the job isn’t done yet. 

Also, Jerrin Thompson is visiting today. He’s a name to keep an eye on. 

 

Agree with this. Also need to make sure to keep winning this year. Need to show these kids that last year wasn’t a fluke. If we finish business on the field it will keep these top kids from looking elsewhere.

I've been saying for months I wasn't thrilled with Lindberg. Nothing against the kid as he seems to be a fine young man, but I was kinda glad he chose Georgia.

I think he picks USC on Friday and I'd love to be wrong!

You will be. USC is a program is turmoil, though they've recently tried to show some solidarity. Their HC is on the hottest seat in America. And this year doesn't hold a lot of promise for them. Not sure he'd want to spend 3-4 years in a rehab period.

Family is involved in the decision and that makes proximity to home a priority.  I believe USC has it in the bag if this is truly the case.

You may be right in December if UT drops the ball and USC has a good season. However, it makes no sense to choose USC on Friday. Herman is in third year with a program that's on the rise while Clay has an Urban Meyer vulture circling him and waiting for him to die coaching wise. 

Bijan has been fonged to UT and an UT 24/7 writer has picked UT. So, it looks like we are in the driver's seat  going into the season.

One tidbit to add from Eric and Justin's Scoop today at Inside Texas, but when Bijan was on his USC visit, he told a fellow Texas target, also visiting SC at the same time, that he "loved" Texas.  This was during his actual OV to SC that this came up.  Now I'm not saying this is a slam dunk for the Horns, but this was interesting to hear.  My guess was that the fellow Texas target was Chris Thompson.

It was Lindberg, who was visiting the same weekend. And he said Bijan was "talking up Texas" meaning talking to more than just Lindberg.
